Ummagumma

I recently got a copy of the 2011 remastered edition of Pink Floyd’s Ummagumma.
After driving to and from work for a few days, I found that ‘Astronomy Domine’ and ‘Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun’ were running thru my head as I was trying to make sense of some software.
It’s pretty strange but not too distracting.

I’ve been listening to this album since I was 14.
‘Dark Side of the Moon’ was what everyone was talking about at the time. I’d just met my stepmom Sig around that time and had mentioned that to her
Sig went out and got ‘Ummagumma’ for me as a gift.
It wasn’t ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ but I really liked it.

I quickly found that ‘Ummagumma’ was a superior work. After a while I gravitated toward the live instrumental pieces.
I’ve been told that ‘Ummagumma’ is pretty strange and I suppose it is.
I’ve been listening to it for 40+ years and it’s become normal for me.
This is why it isn’t distracting.

However, there are days at work when ‘Careful with that Axe Eugene’ is entirely appropriate.
